Information about NT Government school bus services can be found at: UNIFORM AND SHOE POLICY Definition This policy is concerned with the student school day uniform and including the Physical Education [PE] Sport’s uniform.
  • Uniform: Not changing in form or character; remaining the same in all cases and at all times. Rationale O’Loughlin Catholic College aims to develop a community that:
  • Encourages a loyalty to a rich school heritage;
  • Affirms the rights of individuals as well as their responsibility to the school, wider community and the physical environment;
  • Nurtures self-esteem by promoting respect for each person’s uniqueness, dignity and worth;
  • Is compassionate, honest, accepting, tolerant, just, caring and willing to listen. Implementation Our uniform plays an important role in establishing a sense of belonging to the College community. For all of our students, wearing their uniform correctly should be a reflection of both self-respect and school spirit. Uniform standards have the capacity to signal a message about how we view ourselves as a school community and poor standards are very disheartening for many staff, students and parents. Uniform is an area in which we can make an immediate and noticeable improvement provided we have the support of all members of our community. The following detailed list is designed to ensure clarity regarding our uniform requirements:
  • Plain black polishable lace up leather shoe.
  • Plain white anklet length socks – no advertising or coloured bands.
  • Grey ‘drill wash and wear’ shorts.
  • Jade College polo shirt with maroon College emblem.
  • College jacket.
  • Sun smart approved hat. GIRLS’ UNIFORM
  • Plain black polishable lace up leather school shoe
  • Plain white anklet length socks – no advertising or coloured bands.
  • Maroon shorts
  • Jade College polo shirt with maroon College emblem.
  • College jacket.

Sun smart approved hat.

Sports Uniform All students in Years 7-10 have Physical Education [PE] as part of their curriculum. Students need to wear their House Sports shirt and College sports shorts during these lessons. All students are required to wear their sports uniform for the Athletics, Swimming and other sporting activities when they are representing the College. Sports uniforms are available from the Uniform Shop. Senior students in Years 10-12 must purchase a sport uniform if they are enrolled in Physical Education [PE] or Outdoor Education.

  • NB: It is a requirement that all students change back into complete College uniform at the end of each PE lesson. Shoe Policy O’Loughlin Catholic College has made a decision, in line with the requirements of the new Workplace Health and Safety Act under which we have to operate that all students must wear full fitting, school shoes with lace up fronts that provide both a robust sole, good support for growing feet and a non-permeable polishable leather upper that protects the entire top of the foot. JEWELLERY AND HAIR POLICY To be read in conjunction with our Uniform Policy Uniform: Not changing in form or character; remaining the same in all cases and at all times. JEWELLERY
  • One or two gold/silver sleeper/stud in the lower lobe of each ear only– for all students (if students wish to wear one sleeper/stud in one ear only, this is acceptable). Band-Aids covering earrings are also not permitted. No black or larger style earrings.
  • No visible body piercing is permitted - particularly the face.
  • Make-up and nail polish are not acceptable.
  • NB - Apart from a watch, wristbands/items supporting approved charities, medic alerts, approved College badges, bangles and Christian symbols - no other jewellery is permitted. Anklets of any type are also not permitted. HAIRSTYLES
  • Extremes of hairstyles and colours are not permissible, e.g. mohawks, mullets, rat tails and uneven shaved styles (this will be at the discretion of the Principal).
  • Haircuts with number two clippers or higher are acceptable.
  • Shoulder length hair or longer should be tied back for health and safety reasons in certain lessons.
  • Students should wear white, plain or college coloured ribbons. Plain style hair clips are permitted.
  • Boys must be clean-shaven. No beards or goatees are permitted.

The College endeavours to maintain a reasonable and fair process that leads to a very clear and professional standard for our College Community. We believe these standards are important and create a sense of belonging and pride in our school community. Please note that it is a condition on enrolment that parents and carers accept, support and adhere to all College policies.
